I must have been near you


Behind the bench and near the upper part of the lower bowl - we were inside the baseline but outside of the backboard so Kyle was somewhat hidden when he shot. The ball bounced off and I groaned LOUDly and folded my arms as the Auburn group catacorner to us jumped up and down. I wondered why the team wasn't running onto the court but it was a good 30 to 40 seconds before someone in our section said "there was a foul" - was it an inbound foul, a bonus, or on the shot was my next thought....then someone said it's three shots and every one of us in the section had our hands on our heads saying PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. SOMEhow, I had the wherewithal to pull my phone out after the timeout to video the last foul shot and the Auburn miss. The ground shaking and absolute happy disbelief on everyone's faces around us are permanently fixed in my camera roll. It is my absolute favorite camera vid of all time, and I've played it about a million times.
